A stunning fortnight of luxury safari and beach in Tanzania & Zanzibar for the ultimate romantic escape. This trip takes in some of our favourite sights staying in some of our favourite camps and lodges. After a night in Arusha, start your private safari staying 2 nights in Tarangire, 2 nights near Ngorongoro Crater, 2 nights in Serengeti and a week in Zanzibar. You will be spoilt all the way, combining Out of Africa genuine safari, with a modern twist, followed by that much loved beach relaxation.
You will be met from your international flight and taken for your first night in Africa at Rivertrees Country Inn, just outside Arusha. Enjoy this colonial style lodge with lovely central areas, beautiful gardens and pool with several little nooks for enjoying a romantic meal or drink.
After breakfast, you will start your safari journey heading through Arusha to your first safari stop at Tarangire National Park. If you are visiting here between between June and February you should encounter the massive herds of elephant. You have two nights here to relax and enjoy the beautiful wilderness of this lesser known park.
From Tarangire you will have just a few hours drive to Ngorongoro – with the opportunity to stop at Lake Manyara on the way – driving up through the rift escarpment the the Ngorongoro Highlands and staying at the very nice Kitela Lodge for two nights. The next day you will visit the spectacular that is Ngorongoro Crater – one of the world’s natural wonders. Immerse yourself in the crater for the day with a picnic lunch by the floor’s lake and return to the lodge for a hearty supper.
Ehlane Plains is a sumptuous new camp in the Serengeti set in a prime viewing area but away from the crowds. You will love your canvas havens and for the real romantics you can even stay a night on one of the camp’s starbeds, sleeping out in the fresh air under the stars on a raised platform. In the Serengeti the game experience is phenominal with big game a plenty. Our favourite day is spent with breakfast out in the bush, coming back to camp for lunch then heading out in the afternoon before drinks round the camp fire and a tasty dinner. However, with your own private guide, your day is your own and you can plan your day as you wish.
You will wake up on your last day’s safari and head to the airstrip for your short flight(s) to Zanzibar taking in plenty of game action along the way.
Zuri lies on the north west coast of Zanzibar on a stunning beach. It is Zanzibar’s newest luxury hotel offering the perfect combination of luxury and swahili chic. Enjoy a week chilling, swimming, diving and enjoying Zuri’s delicious cuisine before heading to StoneTown for your journey home.
If Safari were to marry Beach this would be one of our favourite honeymoons. All the places are luxurious enough without being naff and, whilst the trip would be expensive for most, it is phenominal value for the experience and comfort it provides.
We'd recomend visiting Luxury Safari & Beach Honeymoon during the months in green.
